Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are sitting up with excitement at the latest news coming from Sky Sports as it seems that the club are in with a shout of getting a former hero back.
Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has long been linked with a return to the Reds and now it seems that he could well be set to make a sensational return to his former club. After stalling on his contract extension with the La Liga giants it now seems that Alonso is certainly set to depart the club in the summer of 2014 and Liverpool feel that they are in pole position to land their former midfield general back.
Now the club are fairly determined to secure the signature of the player and despite the worry that the player will follow Jose Mourinho to which ever new club he decides to join, the lure of the Kop may prove enough in attracting the Spanish international back.
Alonso himself claimed to The People that he is undecided over his own future at the Bernabeu and will not commit either way. In a season of massive uncertainty for Real Madrid in terms of their players future and also that of their manager, Alonso has been one of the key performers and it is pretty clear that Florentino Perez wants the Spanish international to stay at the club.
Are Liverpool in with a realistic shout of re-signing Alonso? Rate this rumour below.
